We examined developmental changes in dopaminergic (DA) neurons of rat pups between postnatal (P) days 3 and 21. DA cell bodies and dendrites grew progressively between P3-15. Voltage-sensitive sodium channels were present in axons at P11, but the ring-like DA axon terminals appeared only during the third postnatal week. The density of ring terminals increased markedly between P15 and P21. The vesicular monoamine transporter (VMAT2) was absent before P13 and became concentrated in DA ring… CONTINUE READING
